New Government figures have shown the average price of a litre of petrol has gone up by more than 1p since last week. Diesel prices have risen by more than 1.5p as shortages still remain an issue around the country.

The Petrol Retailers Association said that around 10 percent of garages in London and the south east are still dry.

The new data showed that the average unleaded driver can expect to pay 137.17p per litre – up from 136.10p last week.

For diesel drivers, they can expect to pay 140.66p per litre – up from 139.2p seven days ago.

This means filling a 55-litre petrol car will cost £75.44, while a 70-litre diesel van will cost £98.46 to fill a tank.

This has caused a lot of problems for drivers as some road users have reported needing to fill their car up more often.

Twitter user Miss C, said the switch to E10 would have a massive impact on her finances.

She claimed: “Someone needs to be fighting against this Government.

“I’m a single mum who went back to work, I need my car for work.

“The E10 petrol will mean I’m using around £100 a week instead of £40 a week it’s shocking this E10 stuff!

“Gas, electric up, food cost up. I’m struggling.”

Another tweet, from someone using the handle ChoonedM, said: “They’re taking the p*** with this E10 petrol ain’t they.

“I’d honestly say I’m getting 3/4 miles out of what I used to.”
